Dali on Un Chien Andalusia

"The film produced the effect that I wanted, and it plunged like a dagger into the heart of Paris as I had foretold. Our film ruined in a single evening ten years of pseudo-intellectual post-war advance-guardism.

"That foul thing which is figuratively called abstract art fell at our feet, wounded to the death, never to rise again, after having seen " a girls' eye cut by a razor-blade - this was how the film began. There was no longer room in Europe for the little maniacal lozenges of Monsieur Mondrian."

I've been working with a razor blade all week. My desire to slit an eye open is overwhelming, as you might imagine.
